Lemon bars are a big hit in this household and at my work. But for a more tropical vibe, and a more elegant feel, I like a lime tart. With a coconut shortbread crust, it is like eating a little piece of heaven. This was made for the birthday of a very lovely lady and I think it is an excellent way to ring in another year of friendship!
I have an intense love for the corn muffins at Famous Dave’s BBQ. These are not those corn muffins.
I’m beginning to think I have a problem. This certainly isn’t helping my pants fit any better. But birthday and celebrations call for cake and there certainly seem to be a lot of them this summer.
I had my first dutch baby the morning after our wedding. We and our bridal party went out for breakfast. Everything looked fantastic and someone had the brilliant idea of ordering a dutch baby with peaches for the table. I owe that individual many thanks.
I was honored to make the birthday cake for my father-in-law’s surprise 60th.He’s a man with very classic tastes and a fondness for banana bread. To dress up this tea time treat, I added some whisky and cream cheese frosting. Makes everything better!
Where can I even begin?
Well, you can thank (or blame) my sister for my return. She and I don’t get to spend as much time together as we used to and it has led to me neglecting things. She is always very encouraging of my cooking (because I think she appreciates having cookies around our parents’ house).
